In developed markets, experience shows that less than 40% of all initiated projects are successfully completed! Project management professionals know that one of the most important reasons for project failure is Initiating projects without serious analysis of the reasons for starting the project, the opportunities and interests of stakeholders, defined project results and goals. Feasibility study, business need analysis, project charter are just different names for an important pass for the project transition from the initiation process to the planning and implementation processes.
In this interactive CPM workshop, certified PMP®, based on real examples from your practice, will help you properly initiate your project, increase the chances of success of your team and enable the achievement of business goals of your company. This workshop is intended primarily for key project participants, company management, project financiers and project managers to help them make a quality decision whether or not they want to further invest in the project.
In our environment, a large number of organizations continue to consciously formulate their annual investment and development plans quickly, ad-hoc by making decisions about investing in projects whose initiation is not based on a quality process basis. The question is, is this really the best business practice in times of economic crisis? The consequences of bad business practice are usually enormous project delays, multiple resource spending, interpersonal conflicts, employee demotivation, and employee distrust of future project endeavors.
The CPM team of mentors will help you during the Initiation workshop to get answers to the following important questions:
- What is the current situation or business problem that we want to solve by implementing the project?
- What exactly do we want to achieve by realizing the project?
- What are the requirements, results and goals of the project, ie. what impact do they have on the system (company) as a whole?
- What are the organizational requirements for achieving the project objectives?
- Are there any additional requirements for successful project implementation (ICT, regulatory, user, economic, political, cultural, environmental)?
- What is the cost structure and expected profit from the project, ie what does the Cost-Benefit analysis of the project show?
- What are the time frames for the realization of the described endeavor?
- What are the main risks posed by the implementation of the proposed venture?
